Board of Ethics

The role of ethics is significant in maintaining public trust, fairness, and the appearance of fairness in all government action. Many local governments, including Bethel, have created laws that outline a Code of Ethics that specify the conduct of all government actions, be it employees, elected or appointed officials, to ensure that all dealings are conducted fairly and in an unbiased manner in both appearance and fact. In general, a Code of Ethics, as is the case for Bethel, is designed to guarantee that procedural requirements are followed so that all government actions are not only fair, but also appear to be fair. The goal of any ethics-related regulation and program is to preserve the public's confidence and trust in government.
